Whiskey lovers are in for a series of treats at The Merrion, as the five star hotel is starting the Fireside Chats. The first one will be hosted on the 12th of September and it will feature Ian Logan, International Brand Ambassador for Chivas Brothers in Scotland from Chivas Brothers in Scotland.
Ian has over 27 years of experience in the whisky industry. In 2004, he returned to his native Scotland from the USA to take up his current role with Chivas Brothers and while he looks after the entire Chivas portfolio, he has a particular passion for The Glenlivet, and is often found at whisky shows pouring a dram or two, or at the distillery showing fans the source of the spirit.
Guests at the talk will be tasting:
1. Scapa Skiren Single Malt
2. Glenlivet Founders Reserve
3. Chivas 12 Year Old
4. A sample of Royal Salute Stone of Destiny 38yo. The whisky is actually closer to 45yo as it has been in a sample cask at Strathisla Distillery for a number of years. It is amazing Whisky and conservatively if this was bottled would be between £8,000 and £10,000.
Price: €45 per person
